Imagine my horror on the day one of my sisters returned with several of our youngsters to our children’s home and told us that a woman had come up to her in a Boston museum and, after looking at our children, had said to her, “These children should have been aborted.”

Each of the children in our home is a beautiful, unique, irreplaceable person — just like every other human being. Yet these same children could have been aborted legally just a few years before the museum conversation took place, and the horror of that loss would have been hidden from our eyes.

During the nearly 40 years that abortion has been legal in the United States, we have lost more than 50 million of these beautiful children to this gruesome action, euphemistically called a “woman’s right to choose.”

Please consider as you vote today that if you are supporting candidates who support this “right,” you are participating in the crime that is causing this once-beautiful, once-vibrant country founded on the premise that the Creator has endowed us with the inalienable rights of “life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness” to continue to slowly yet inexorably commit suicide. Suicide is never “death with dignity.”
